Our Loyal Supporters help us Keep Families Close

Powered By Tacos

Local philanthropy is a cornerstone of BelAir Cantina. Recently the Ronald McDonald House was chosen to be BelAir Cantina’s Powered By Tacos partner. Community partners are important to us in raising awareness and funds to support our mission. BelAir is dedicated to improving the communities they serve, not just by providing a venue to gather and celebrate, but also through sponsoring local nonprofits that share the company’s values.

Ann Petrie, RMHC President & CEO, and Gary Zimmerman, former RMHC Board Chair, had the privilege of working with Chef Noe to create the “Mi Casa es Su Casa” taco that features lobster and shrimp mac n’ cheese with corn salsa and crispy tortilla strips. A portion of the funds from the sale of each taco will be donated to the House to help fund the refresh of our 3rd floor long-term family kitchen. It is a recipe for success!

We are grateful for the passion our partners at BelAir Cantina have for our mission and their commitment to helping us build a strong foundation for our families.

Northwestern Mutual dreams big and strives to improve the lives of children and families and make a lasting impact in the communities they serve. In 2013, Northwestern Mutual Foundation embraced the idea of supporting a program that would touch each of our families – food – and partnered with us to launch the Healthy Food Program. This program has enhanced the impact we have on each family who calls our House “home”. Families have access to fresh fruit, lunches to take with them to the hospital, and on Fridays when we have no family dinner, NM employees prepare “make ahead” meals for our families to enjoy.

Our Healthy Food Program helps to keep our families’ stomachs full and bodies strong, but equally important, the care and compassion of our Ronald McDonald House community, the love and support from our volunteers, and the generosity of companies like Northwestern Mutual keeps these families together, filling their souls with hope for a future with a healthy child. For these reasons, Northwestern Mutual was awarded our Pihos Award at Chefs Dinner 2018.

Thanks to Northwestern Mutual, our Healthy Food Program was able to serve more than 2,000 families a year and that is something we are incredibly grateful for!

Great Clips Logo

Great Clips has always worked to strengthen their local communities. Through Great Clips Great Deeds program, corporate staff, franchisees, managers, and stylists share their great talents, time and resources to do good. “It’s a big world, and one of the most important benefits of being a successful company is being fortunate enough to contribute on a bigger scale,” said Great Clips Vice Chair of the Board Rhoda Olsen. “A partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin allows us to give back in a very meaningful way by strengthening our local community, and positively impacting the health and wellness of children undergoing medical treatment, and their families.”

Great Clips has been supporting the House for over five years through their “Have A Heart” fundraising campaign. Through this campaign, they engage Great Clips franchisees, managers, and stylists to raise funds to support our mission of keeping families together. During the month of March, customers are given the opportunity to donate funds to RMHC Eastern Wisconsin when paying for their salon services. Great Clips incentivized this program and now rewards customers who make donations with a $2 off coupon for their next haircut at Great Clips.

We are so appreciative of Great Clips continued support in helping raise funds and friends of the House!
